Professors across the nation are cancelling classes Wednesday to help students deal with their emotional distress as they come to grips with the “shocking” election of Donald Trump.
At the University of Connecticut, for example, one professor emailed her students to inform them that since “the election process has been particularly trying for so many people,” she would not be “taking roll in class tomorrow.”

Dozens of other students throughout the country took to social media to explain that their professors had canceled class out of concern that students are “emotionally and mentally unable to be there.”
“When your professor canceled class today cuz he’s pissed Donald Trump won,” one student posted to Facebook, while another recounted that his “teachers have canceled class today…since there’s a protest” on campus.
“It looks like I’m taking this day to complete my final essay for Women and Gender Studies and to try to cope with a nation ruled by Trump,”…
